VANDALS shattered the peace and quiet of Gympie Tce, Noosaville, last weekend, with more than a dozen windows smashed early Sunday morning.

Real estate offices, restaurants and a private company were targeted in a rampage reportedly by one person.

Noosa Police said a fisherman alerted them to the crime spree about 2.30am on Sunday, but they had not been able to trace the person.

Five windows were damaged at Laguna Real Estate and staff said a they thought a hammer had been used to inflict the damage.

Melissa Dixon of We Rent Property said one big hole in a window had sent shattered glass down to the end of the office.

"Our landlord, who has been here a long time, said she had never seen anything like it," she said.

Maisie's restaurant was also targeted in what owner, long-time restaurateur Ziggie Fiegl, called a very rare event.

Noosaville Business Association president Andy Slavin echoed traders' sentiment that the event was foreign to the family-orientated precinct.

"It's very unusual for this to happen," he said. "This is a safe environment."

Mr Slavin, who had owned Sirocco restaurant on Gympie Tce for three years, said when he drove home after evening closing time it was always "so quiet".
